Rummage Bin Challenge

Welcome to Stamping Stadium!

OK... just kidding! But that's what I thought of when I saw this challenge. The amazing Lesley Langdon (designer and stamp artist) issued a challenge. Who can pass up a challenge?

Not me!

Instead of Iron Chef, I thought of Iron Stamper. Grit and determination to create the unique with a special ingredient...

Today's ingredient:
Use the Ledger Me set and specifically create a project using the Date sentiment and the coffee stain.

You're ON, Lesley!!! I'll take that challenge!

What I Love:

I incorporated the ingredients in the challenge and think I've added a bit of my own flavor. I could easily see myself giving this card to my daughter. She's in the pre-teen / tween stage and could use extra encouragement from me to know she's loved. The colors are fun and one of the things I enjoy the most about the design.

So, what do you think? Did I have a recipe for success?

I hope this meets the mark, Lesley!

I have a challenge for Lesley now...

I could use the inspiration and ideas for another of the Rummage Bin sets. Lesley, your secret ingredients are the Great Canadian stamp set, using the Coffee Co. sentiment.
